California lawmakers approve sanctuary bill

Inc. All rights reserved. This material may not be published broadcast rewritten or redistributed

California is poised to become a so-called "sanctuary state" after its legislature passed a bill Saturday that would establish new protections for people who are in the country illegally and send a clear signal of defiance against the Trump administration's tough approach to immigration enforcement.

The bill, a compromise from a version that sought to severely restrict interactions between law enforcement and immigration officials, does allow communities to notify the federal government if they have arrested an undocumented immigrant with a felony record.

More than three years ahead of the next presidential election, Donald Trump has likely already lost California and all of its 55 electoral votes as the State Assembly there has passed legislation that requires presidential candidates to release their tax returns.

Given Gov. Brown's scathing criticism of Trump and the state's commitment to impeding his agenda, there's a good chance he will sign the legislation.

With more than a dozen bills in this year's housing "package" now on their way to the governor's desk, the state Legislature has taken the first and most important step toward addressing California's housing crisis: Recognizing the scope of the problem-and beginning the hard work of developing solutions on the scale needed to solve it.

Trump's message on DACA, Dreamers loses its coherence
Depending on what "massive increase in border security" turns out to be, this seems to me to be a completely sensible deal. But the following day, Trump told reporters " the wall will come later ", according to CNN.

"The California State Sheriffs' Association (CSSA) remains opposed to SB 54 writing, "... limiting local law enforcement's ability to communicate and cooperate with federal law enforcement officers endangers public safety." .

Senator Kevin De León (D-Los Angeles) said the amendments added to the bill this week were reasonable and would not change the overall mission of the bill to protect hard-working families.

"It's a purposeful positioning", said political analyst Sherry Bebitch Jeffe, a senior fellow at the University of Southern California. But it now allows local police to respond to notification requests and transfers immigrants to U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement if the individual has committed one of the more than 800 crimes outlined in The Trust Act. Assemblyman James Gallagher, R-Yuba City, said the bill would create "only a sanctuary for criminals". "The only thing this bill provides a sanctuary for is unsafe criminals", said Assemblyman James Gallagher, a Republican from Nicolaus.

Democrats say the bill will help ensure that immigrants feel safe reporting crimes to law enforcement.
